  1. I’m on the east coast, VA. I think we’ve talked on the FB group, you sold me some parts awhile back. The car is a turbo wagon I found in a local yard. I’ve been picking some parts off of for various members.
  2. I don’t know that it wasn’t a regular XD3 and I was mistaken. I will have to go back to that yard at some point as their prices were reasonable. They also had a rust 604 that looked complete.
  3. I have access to a junkyard N9TE motor, with complete intercooler assembly, if you decide to go closer to the stock GTD setup, I could pull it for you.
  4. Hi, Others can hopefully chime in who have more experience with this, I haven’t had to deal with rust that bad yet. I would look for the whole rear trailing arm assemblies for both sides at least. I know they have to match the spec of the car you own. (So an S would be different from an STI, etc.) I would try to find a junkyard car closely matching yours to transplant the better parts from.
  5. Thanks for the reply Rabin. I admit, I don’t know much about this particular engine. I was under the impression it had intercooling, plus an oil cooler on the US models. I thought they made significant upgrades beyond the displacement. You’re right, I should have taken a pic. I was in a real rush. I would like to replace my air filter at some point, since it’s warped around the area where if seals, but I don’t necessarily need to go with a different model.
  6. I’ve come across one of the rare for US 505’s with the XD3 motor, plus 4 speed auto. It’s in a junkyard a few hours drive from here. Looks like the engine is basically complete, and I didn’t get a chance to look into why the car was scrapped. My questions is, does anyone know if are there any parts worth taking off of the XD3 that would be a possible upgrade for my 83 XD2S? I know that the injection pump, turbo, and intake manifold are different. Would the airbox, or intercooler fit or be worth taking for my car? I have the original oil bath air filter which is a bit warped on my car, so I should probably replace it anyway. I’s love to pull the whole engine/transmission but that’s obviously not very practical.
  7. Paint it flat black! Just kidding. I’m still following this thread, you’re doing great work! A local auto paint place ought to be able to match your white or look up the original code. If you’re artistically inclined playing around tinting some Rustoleum might work.
  8. Given your stable of options, how do you like driving the 405? I guess it’s not really directly comparable to the other choices, as it’s a very different kind of car, just curious.
  9. Quite a garage you’ve got there. I haven’t seen to many 405’s in white, it’s a nice look. Good job going thru and thoroughly fixing everything.
  10. Beautiful! I also own a PX10, a later model that I’m restoring. Sadly, someone chose to powder coat the frame, applied more modern 80s decals. The chrome was removed when it was powder coated. They did return the wine cork to the fork crown though... It always inspires me when I see nice original examples to persevere with the resto.
  11. Great job. I’ve always like that era of Peugeot’s design. That engine looks pretty daunting!
  12. I agree, I didn't love the early dash at first, but its really grown on me. People seemed genuinely shocked that I wanted to try to resurrect this old French car. It seems the owner planned on scrapping it as it wasn't getting much interest. Going over my plan to try to get the engine started, I'm debating whether or not I should remove the tank and drain it, or simply fill it with fresh diesel and treatment, and change the filter afterwards. The fuel gauge shows its close to reserve. Speaking of the filter, I'm wondering if the filter on this car was changed, or was ever original on the 505? The large spin on WIX filter is nice and cheap. I don't seem to see the obvious knob or plunger to prime the pump. I guess I just remove the top bolt and pour in diesel? Once I can get some proper manuals for this car I can tackle some other jobs more confidently.
  13. The door tumbler indeed did not suffice to fit the ignition. I figured I needed door keys anyway so I would try that before removing the whole steering column, which is what I ended up doing. The TRX tires still hold air pretty well which is impressive, although they are cracking in places. You're correct, its an XD2s, although automatic, sadly. The 5-speed TD I looked at over the summer was in worse shape and I wasn't able to do a deal with them. If I continue to love this car and fix all of its issues I will at least dream about converting it.
  14. Indeed the engine did not want to turn over by hand, so I removed the glow plugs and squirted Mystery Oil into the cylinders. I allowed that to soak for about a week. The engine has a full supply of oil, and there's nothing unusual to see there, no chunks of anything or signs of coolant mixing with oil. Hooking a jumper battery up to the car, almost everything inside works! The sunroof motor turns and there is no movement, so I'm assuming it has the usual problems. The power windows work very weakly. After the week of soaking, the car now turns over with the starter freely. My next plan will be to try to run this thing.
